Yesterday an Entertainment Tonight preview video floated around which showcased a few brief scenes from the upcoming baseball movie 'Moneyball' an adaptation of Michael Lewis’ 2003 bestseller. The movie stars Brad Pitt as Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane, who has to restructure his team based on a tight budget. He turns to recent Ivy League grad Peter Brand [Jonah Hill] to help him crunch stats with new computer-generated analysis and chose his team players in a way completely different from the traditional route. Today an official trailer for the movie was released and its much better than the preview. The movie hits theaters September 23rd. Hit the jump to check out the trailer.
Directed by Oscar-nominee Bennett Miller [Capote], the movie also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as A’s manager Art Howe and former San Francisco Giants shortstop Royce Clayton as then-A’s shortstop Miguel Tejada.
